Very busy with fun inshore trips lately. Concentrating both in the South and bay systems. Early morning Sebile Bongos have been taking loads of quality speckled trout and redfish on the shallow flats. We’ll launch topwater baits until about 730am and then switch to Gulp! Jerkshads and Shrimp as the sun goes overhead. Finding lots of trout and redfish over structure such as oyster bars in the later part of the mornings. The recent rains dictate our locations. No rains means the bays will be productive and lots of rain will keep us in the very busy Sound. Sight fishing in Santa Rosa Sound has been excellent and we’re finding fish pretty cooperative with long, accurate casts. Some redfish have measured 26-28″ and a few 27″s at 7.5-8# so they’re eating plenty. Obviously, the weekdays are much better than the weekend. We also continue to please anglers in the last hour or so with those jumping blacktips. Some we can sight fish and others are caught drifting. Lots of fish going home to the grill but more released. Thanks, E Holstman
